Program Application

The Paramedic Program is Selective Admissions, which means you have to meet certain requirements to apply. The grades you earned in school also figure into your eligibility in the Applicant Score.

Application Requirements

For your application to be considered, you must:

  • Be accepted as a student to TCC
  • Confirm with the Registrar's office that your TSI scores meet TCC's requirements

Applicant Score

Students who participate in the program are selected based on the Applicant Score.

Applicant Score = Cumulative Grade Point Average + Bonus Points

Bonus Points are assigned based on the grades you earned in school before applying to this program
